Tomorrow night The Heart of Rock & Roll is in Roanoke as the first of three rock icons takes the stage at Elmwood Park for the Star City Concert Series. Brought to you by Across-the-Way Productions, this concert series features Huey Lewis & The News on Wednesday, April 20, Blondie on Thursday, May 12 and Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys on Saturday, August 20.
Being billed as “Totally Rad Roanoke,” these shows deliver some of the greatest old school rock bands who are still thrilling audiences with their live performances. Huey Lewis, who’s known for hit singles “Stuck with You,” “The Power of Love,” and “Jacob’s Ladder,” has a series of spring shows scheduled, including Myrtle Beach, Atlanta and Nashville, and is also a regular opener for Jimmy Buffett’s annual tour. Local bluegrass band, Love Canyon, will kick things off at Elmwood Park tomorrow night and an after party is being held at Martin’s Downtown with music by local jam band, The Mad Iguanas.
